History and linage: Julian Fowler September 2003
I obtained a cassette copy in the autum of the 1997 from a tree run on the rec.music.gdead newsgroup. In spite of the
numerous efforts to locate anything with a lower number of analog generations, I've not been able to discover anything
better than what I have now; nor does this material seem to circulate among DAT users or (until Now) CD traders.
I've therefore taken my casette copy and transferred it to the digital domain. The best guess that I have for the annalog
lineage is as follows:
live/rehearsal recordings (DAT and/or ADAT) > ? > cassette > at least one cassette generation > my cassette
I did the transfer using an AIWA AD-F850 tape deck, played directly into the inputs of a Yamaha DS-XG sound card.
I used CoolEdit 2000 v1.1 to do the initial analog > digital sampling, apply mild noise reduction (my source tape is
somewhat hissy, not surprising give the number of analog generations) and reduce the length of some of the
between-song gaps. I used CD Wav v1.73 to define track boundaries and mkwACT v0.97 to prepare a master
SHN disc (track boundaries verified using SHNtool.)

From Rolling Stone, Apr 20, 1998
Although it's common knowledge that the Grateful Dead were in the midst of recording when Jerry Garcia died almost three
years ago, former keyboardist Vince Welnick shed more light on the unfinished album in a recent conversation with the Rolling
According to Welnick, the album was set to include such tour-tested songs as "Liberty," "So Many Roads," "Days Between,"
"Samba in the Rain," "Way To Go," "Corrina," and "Easy Answers," but Garcia passed away before the tracks could be
completed. "We had just about finished the basics when Jerry checked out," Welnick said. "It's a shame, because we spent
a lot of time in there."
Although the studio tapes from the Grateful Dead's would-be swan song are still around, Welnick doubts that the album can
be salvaged. "There weren't even working vocals on some of the songs. There was also very little guitar. If they wanted to make
something of it, they'd probably have to splice in something from one of the show tapes."
Grateful Dead spokesman Dennis McNally denied that anything will ever come of the album.
"Only [Grateful Dead guitarist] Bobby [Weir] ever thought that anything could be done, but it can't. Jerry didn't contribute to it.
Everyone else contributed to it, but Jerry just wasn't with it. There's not even a title, to my knowledge."

most of it sounds so unfocused and terrible, no direction,
Subject: Part of me is Glad...
That being said, I do love "Lazy River Road" and "So Many Roads." Perhaps if they would have just stuck to songs about roads...
Also, the sound quality is shaky at best. 2.5 stars for the Garcia/Hunter collabs, especially "LRR" and "SMR," and the novelty of it.

Here's what I have so far. None of them are perfect(It's live Dead they way we like it!), but they're all great versions.
1. Wave to the Wind 3-23-92
2. Eternity 3-5-94
3. Easy Answers 2-27-94
4. Childhood's End 9-24-94
5. Corinna 3-10-93
6. Liberty 6-26-93
I have been stuck on Samba for a long time. I'm afraid that Jerry never bothered to rehearse a solo for the jam at the end and I won't find a worthy candidate.
I haven't tackled Lazy,So Many Roads,and Way to Go as there are Soo many good versions. The best ones are waiting to be mined.
This version of Childhoods End is the best I think from the acoustic Berkley show. The Lazy river from the same show is pretty good too...
Anybody else out there got any leads? I've looked at Heady Version quite a bit but I find that people are just posting random versions without really listening to them all for comparison.
Unfortunately since we can't download soundboards anymore, I can only stream them and then the quality is compromised.
Thanks for any help

Subject: Why don't they release a live album?
It is interesting that this post includes the composing credits, as well as that Rolling Stone Magazine excerpt! Although it doesn't matter, but I knew that fellow Dennis McNally (not well through my ex-attorney) of whom I wonder if he ever published that book he would claim was an ongoing project about yes of course, you guessed it: Grateful Dead? Nevertheless, I hate to criticize since he usually knew what he was talking about bout here he seems to contradict himself! Moreover, it is also a bit strange what Vince mentioned within, being plausibly logical in terms of what was still left undone in terms of vocals and guitar, perhaps he s referring to the tunes from this era that aren't included here like for example one of his namely, "Samba in the Rain" or "Childhood's End" by Lesh, since this doesn't seem to apply to this batch?
As for the rest of you previous commenters, are mixed up (with the exception of the one who mentioned looking on some newsgroup), which was obvious (not to be egotistical about it) to me before I even started listening to this; that is to say yes it is definitely studio perhaps at Club Front in San Raphael (like in the past also on some New Year's Day) of which the year(s) escape me)? However, yes it is quite likely that this stuff is thus far as they got done without overdubbing, so could be called "live in the studio"! But no definitely not, as someone on wondered, one of those Dan Healy local F.M.'s (not intended to extend out farther than at whatever venue he used to do that in order to comply with the F.C.C. so as not to interfere with the permanent licensed station assigned to the given frequency he would use for that), since for one thing this is well after Healy had his unfortunate falling out as such no longer was their sound man!
Subject: You're both right
In any event, it is nice to have this compilation of some of the later songs and the quality is excellent.
Subject: not live
Subject: Live Tracks Mix
Was it compiled by somebody within the Dead family for possible release, or by a Deadhead (i.e. something anybody could do by picking favorite versions of post-Built to Last Dead songs)?
Subject: not bad at all.
